Hermès 2018 Blanc Evercolor Leather Limited Edition Optique Mini Constance 18 Bag
In Spring of 2018, Hermès VIP clients began to see a trickling of unique Constance bags in boutiques the world over. Featuring a stunning display of coloured enamel lacquer in an illusory pattern of linework, the Constance Optique is an instant collectible. The iconic H clasp displays the colours of the French Flag in vertical bands of red, white and blue. Crafted in Blanc Evercolor Leather with palladium-plated hardware, a convertible flat shoulder strap, tonal leather lining, dual interior compartments, two slit pockets at interior walls and a multicoluor 'H' push-lock closure at the front flap. An extraordinary reinterpretation of the Hermes Constance worthy of the most discerning collector.
The Constance bag was designed by Catherine Chaillet in 1959 and was given its name in honour of her fifth child, Constance, having delivered the baby the same day the first Constance bag left the Hermes production store. With its leather shoulder strap allowing the bag to hang freely, it soon became the favourite of former First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline Kennedy who popularised the Constance amongst Hollywood’s elite. It takes 14 hours for a single skilled artisan to construct the bag.
